The DEI Candid Conversation: Allyship

Ally: What is it and why do I need to be/have one (or two)?

As part of the DEI Candid Conversations Series, we will take an intimate group dive into the concept of allyship, why it’s not a buzz word or a new concept and why the commercial real estate industry has an important part to play in its (allyship’s) practice. Join us on June 12th for a conversation with Adele Bayless, PROPer Associates, and our members.

Adele Bayless, Founder | PROPer Associates

With over 30 years of experience in property and facility management, Adele has honed her skills in all aspects of the field, from property maintenance and tenant relations to budget management and lease negotiations. Her experience has also allowed her to develop a deep understanding of the importance of sustainable operations, which she believes is a crucial component of modern property management.

In 2011, Adele earned a Certificate of Fitness from the Los Angeles Fire Department, equipping her to craft emergency plans and conduct comprehensive tenant and staff training. Notably, she played a pivotal role in the inauguration of Minneapolis, Minnesota's first Class A high-rise in 20 years—a towering 37-story edifice amalgamating office, hotel, and residential components. Her experience encompasses diverse real estate types, including high/mid/low-rise office spaces, suburban office parks, industrial complexes, retail outlets, multifamily properties, HOAs, shopping centers, luxury residential estates, and bank facilities, encompassing trading floors, call centers, branches, and private banks.

Adele has held the Real Property Administrator (RPA©) and Facility Management Administrator (FMA©) designations since 2001, underscoring her commitment to professional excellence. Her passion for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) and her endeavors to fortify relationships between first responders and commercial property managers are evident through her conduct of seminars, contributions to white papers, and service as an instructor for the RPA program.
